DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo was denied a new sentence by a Maryland judge



Washington, D.C. sniper Lee Boyd Malvo has been denied a new sentence by a judge in Montgomery County, Maryland on Wednesday, our affiliate WJLA reported.

In June 2017, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring filed a notice that the state appealed the federal court order to require re-sentencing for Malvo, who is serving two life sentences.

Malvo was 17 when he was arrested in 2002 for a series of shootings that killed 10 people and wounded three in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, causing widespread fear throughout the region.

Malvo's accomplice, John Allen Muhammad, was executed.

On May 26, 2017, U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson in Norfolk said Malvo was entitled to new sentencing hearings after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that mandatory life sentences for juveniles was unconstitutional.
